  1. I am amazed at the simplicity of this scene but the impact that it has Elina πŸ˜€ Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful work, I love it. The composition, monochrome, and red straws everything is just perfect. Oh by the way did I mention it is wonderful, LOL.

    Selective color is often over used but this is just great. It raises a question, at least in my mind. Were there 3 people? Or did one person have two drinks and his/her friend only one? Or was it someone like me who would have all 3 drinks to themselves then amble on home? And sleep it off? Happy New Year to you, Elina.

    1. I have the same understanding on selective color. Here I felt it just has to be so that the straws would really stand out. There were three people who left that table with glasses just when we came in to sit at the table next to it. And I just fell in love with this scene. πŸ™‚ About the drinks, I’m not sure they were alcoholic ones. But who knows. It’s nice to hear that you saw a story in this photo. A very Happy New Year to you too Emilio! Thank you for such a lovely comment, I always enjoy hearing your thoughts!

  3. Lovely picture – it tells an entire story! I don’t know anything about the technical side of photography, so have no idea how you got the monochrome/colour combination, but it has a wonderful impact! Great capture of a moment in time and space!
    Your photos are an integral part of my life now. πŸ™‚ So technology can be a good thing… πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much Aldous, it’s always wonderful to hear your thoughts! And I agree, technology can be good. Have a very lovely weekend! πŸ™‚

  4. This composition is nothing but the perfection! I guess that you can’t just take a walk Elina. Because every time you turn the head, you see someting to shoot. I know that you will sell this picture! Take the money and run! πŸ™‚

  5. This is beautiful. I normally am not a fan of selective color at all β€” it usually feels so random and inartistic, but this is the exact opposite! Wonderful, really!
